Wanyama Tips Harmbee Stars For 2022 World Cup

Harambee Stars of Kenya captain Victor Wanyama believes his side have the potential to make it to the 2022 World Cup.

The Harambee Stars have never made it to the FIFA World Cup, and are in the same qualifying group as Mali, Rwanda, and Uganda.

The Montreal Impact midfielder insists that Kenya are in a tough qualifying group and has tipped Mali as favorites to make it to the World Cup, but is confident Kenya can also make it to the global showpiece.

“It’s a difficult group and we respect all the teams,” Wanyama said.

“As with any qualifying event, you shouldn’t complain about the quality of your opponents or the group.

“We have strong rivals, but games are decided only on matchdays and out on the pitch, so we have to do our best to get good results and qualify from that group.

“I think Mali are the favourites, but Uganda and Rwanda are very good too. Any of those three could make it.”

“Every player dreams of the World Cup and we’ll do all we can to qualify. We hope things go in our favour and that we reach Qatar 2022.”

The midfielder said he knew Kenya would make it to the Africa Cup od Nations (AFCON) in Egypt in 2019 despite their 15-year absence, because of the great squad they had built.

“We knew that we had a group of players who were capable of achieving big things and qualifying for the continental finals after so long,” Wanyama continued.

“We also knew it was a very important tournament and that we had to be there. Having participated in the most recent edition, we look forward to making the next one too, but next time we’ll go there to compete.”

Next for Kenya will be their AFCON qualifier double header against Comoros in November.
